|My Grandfather, John Axel Ekstrom, was born in Kalmar, Sweden, on November 18, 1865.His Father's name was Johann Ekstrom and Mother's name was Anna Louise. He had a Brother that was lost at sea.|
He came to the United States and settled in Portland, Oregon.He married Emma Freeborough, from South Willingham, England, in 1892.They had two sons, John Henry and James Freeborough Ekstrom, my Father.They made their home in Chinook, Washington, for a time and then made a return trip to Sweden around 1910.
Grandfather died in Cassleberry, Florida, in 1959 and Grandmother died in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1944.Anyone who has done any research on the Ekstrom family from Kalmar, Sweden, who can help me, I would greatly appreciate any information you might have. I'm very interested to find some information about my great-grandparents, Johann and Anna Louise Ekstrom.
